Pumpkin Pancakes

I'm digging into old recipe boxes and rediscovering the family favorites hidden inside! You'll find carefully handwritten recipe cards, newspapers and magazines clippings and even some hastily scrawled directions on scraps of paper, all from years (and years) ago! They're all getting scanned and transcribed so you can enjoy them in your own home kitchen.

I acquired this recipe for Pumpkin Pancakes around 2006. It came from a magazine (and I can't for the life of me remember which one). The cinnamon and nutmeg are both additions I added to the original recipe. These pancakes are not very sweet, but that’s probably a good thing since syrup gets poured on top. They would probably be heavenly with apple butter or pumpkin butter!

My children loved these pancakes. I hope your family will too.

The recipe has been scanned and transcribed below and can be printed for use in your own home kitchen. Enjoy!

Please Note: Every effort has been made to transcribe these old recipe cards completely and accurately. Many have faded, are stained, or simply do not include every step or tool used in the process. We have changed the wording in some places and added instruction in others to make the text a bit clearer. We do not test or verify all the information found on these old cards. If you choose use the information found here, please know that you do so at your own risk.
